Credit Card not accepted

Hey guys,


I'm a first timer trying to create some ads for my business. In the billing section, I entered my credit card details but I keep getting this message :

"Authorization failed: No reason provided by your financial institution"


I've tried different cards (which are perfectly legit and work everywhere else) but the problem persists.


Please help me out as soon as you can.

I would suggest speaking with your Bank on this. They might require authorization from yourside before the card can be used for AdWords.
